RIAA Drops Lawsuit Against ISPs
from the for-now... dept
Well, it’s unlikely that this will make much of a difference, other than delaying things a week or so until the next lawsuit pops up, but the music industry has called off their legal dogs who were suing major ISPs to force them to block access to a site that was offering downloadable music. Clearly, the entertainment industry thinks that they own all content these days, and thus should control exactly how anyone accesses it. I’m sure we’ll see a similar lawsuit pop up again soon. I still think we should encourage some more major ISPs to take after Information Wave Technologies and block all access by RIAA computers.

Not to sound Libertarian...
This sounds like some politicians that think that all money automatically belongs to them until they “grant” you access to it. Those of you who (like me) live in California and deal with our whole DMV registration fiasco know what I mean.
Block RIAA good, put spoof files in system bad
Blocking access to RIAA is good, but the same ISP also said that it would begin deliberately putting “spoof” files into its P2P servers.
overpeer.com is a company in New York that makes dummy files that appear to be songs, etc. but are really just junk

They are looking to defend the rights of P2P file sharers
